1994 Aston Martin DB7

Launched in 1993, the DB7 has been the backbone of the company. Its international success has meant that it has become the most successful Aston Martin model of all time – exceeding the combined production of the classic Aston Martin DB4, Aston Martin DB5 and Aston Martin DB6. Since 1914, Aston Martin has built just over 22,000 models – 7000 of which are DB7’s – proving how important the model has been in providing continued growth to the company.

Regarded by many as one of the world’s most beautiful cars, the Aston Martin DB7 received many subtle but effective changes over its 10 year life to complement the elegant, yet classic body design which, since 1993 has epitomised the pedigree, heritage and tradition of Aston Martin. It was Victor Gauntlett who first suggested that a new, smaller Aston Martin should be built alongside the big V8 Astons, a car that would, in terms, be a volume seller.

Aston Martin DB7 was launched to the public at the Geneva Motor show in March 1993. The engine proved to be a light alloy, twin camshaft, supercharged straight six of 3,228cc based on a design that had originated at Jaguar. The cylinder head used 4 valves per cylinder with Zytec electronic multi-point fuel injection while the air needed to combust the fuel was delivered by a water cooled Eaton, ‘roots’ type, supercharger which was driven by a toothed belt from the camshaft.
